COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 100 percent malted lager, “Leinie’s Classic” features Leinenkugel’s own unique blend of two-row and six-row malts and four varieties of hops. A blend of Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts offer a complex flavor, with four different hops (Cluster, Cascade, Mt. Hood, and Hallertau) to balance the malts. Acknowledging their German heritage, Leinenkugel’s brewed Classic Amber in Reinheitsgebot tradition, where the only ingredients permitted are malts, water, hops, and yeast.

Fell for it again. I guess marketing works. Why would I think the amber would be different than the others? Pretty bland and pretty blah. Not again.

12 ounce bottle pours a clear golden yellow color, aromas of hay, light husk, some grain, and a touch of earth. flavors follow suit, decent beer overall.

Bottle. Light sour barley malt and metallic aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Mildly sweet malt and and hay aroma. Light body. Bland - barely more flavor than the average macro pale lager and most of that is metallic.

Bottle. LIght, slightly sweet barley malt and soapy aroma. Clear copper with a large off-white head. Barley malt and light grassy flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Not great, not bad, would be acceptable for the lawn mower.

Nothing special about this beer, it reminded me of a mass produced light beer with a little malt backbone

As the name suggests, this pours an amber color with a decent off-white head. The aroma is mostly of grains and malts. The taste is rather malty with some spices as well. Finishes slightly crisp and I actually think this delivers a better spice flavor than their Oktoberfest. Not bad, I heard they were putting this into hibernation so I wanted to try it before I couldn’t find it anymore.

Bottle. Light amber pour with white head. Smells of malt and slight hops. Tastes of sweet malts and slight citrus hops. Decent amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a souvenir from my student’s trip to the US ^_^ A nice amber ale that was was dark like an ale but light & crisp like a lager, It is really drinkable & lightly spiced. It would make a nice session beer.

Clear golden color with a small, white head. The aroma is caramel, and toasted malts, with some lager yeast characteristics. Light palate with some caramel flavors and not much else. Pretty plain all in all.
